Overall a dependable truck for its year.

2002 Dodge Dakota Sport

Dependable basic features, durable interior, average body rusts easily. Hard working motor very dependable but has very poor gas mileage. 5 speed manual transmission shirts clean, easy to use clutch. Speakers were poor sound quality. 4-wheel drive is very acceptable. It a very dependable truck but the emission system could be a lot better.

this is my girl truck it's not for boys

2002 Dodge Dakota Sport

I haven't had any major problems with this car I recently just got an oil change. It is a very good running car thus far. I love that its a truck, but it's a small truck and it's cute I call it my girl truck. I love how it's very small in the back barely enough room for others


Dodge Dakota- small truck with a lot of space

2002 Dodge Dakota Sport

It runs great and is reliable. The major problems that my truck and others of this model seem to have are power windows, heat and A/C, and being very prone to rusting. Features I find useful are the amount of seating space, 4 wheel drive, and overall size of the truck.
